It's a special moment when you realize another mortal being understands you: your wants, your needs, your desires, and yes, your cravings for breakfast burritos. And we have found that in Jim Gaffigan, thanks to his delightful new book Food: A Love Story. Is this not our own love story, Jim?!
If you've ever wondered what Jamie Oliver looks like singing a Taylor Swift song ... we'd ask you why you would ever wonder that. But now we know, and it's still kind of weird. But the cakes look good!
It's time to face the facts: if you want to open a restaurant that is a) not ginormous, b) not in Las Vegas, and c) does not serve donkey sauce, you are not going to ever be a millionaire. Sorry to disappoint.
It's been a bode for female chefs this month, after Acquavit'sEmma Bengtsson landed a second Michelin star for the restaurant. She's only the second female executive chef to have two Michelin stars under her belt (the first being Dominique Crenn in San Francisco). Turns out, Bengtsson almost didn't take the job in the first place. With the wave of her success, it's safe to say now: no more excuses, lady chefs.
Guys, this year’s GoogaMooga is already going to be a major improvement upon last year’s; for one thing, THERE ARE TRADING CARDS THIS TIME. Yup, as in old school, swap-with-your-friends-to-complete-a-set, bask-in-your-own-triumph-upon-completion trading cards.
Editorial Director Jordana Rothman paired up with Doug Cunningham to design five packs of cards, organized in part by the themed villages on the GoogaMooga grounds, with each card featuring a different chef, mixologist, sommelier, or chef-mom (!) you’re bound to find at the festival.
On the flip side of each person’s visage are stats like what they’ll be serving at GoogaMooga, Q&As, and recipes. Check out every chef card you can pick up with an excerpt from their stats below. If you’d like to see any of the cards in glorious detail, click here.
